George Harrison’s Mercedes Sold at Auction

The black AMG Mercedes 500 SEL that George Harrison bought in 1984, which was featured at last year’s Classic & Supercars Show, was sold at auction for £43,200.

Harrison originally paid £85,000 for the car and owned it for 16 years. It featured in the official video for the song ‘Real Love’.

The car was sold this month alongside more than 350 previously unseen photos of The Beatles at two early US shows that fetched £253,200. Other items sold included a signed hotel register from a night at “The Bull” in Peterborough, which all four musicians signed along with their manager Brian Epstein, which went for £9,840.
